Number 10: the “Paraponera
The Paraponera is known as the “bullet ant”. With such a designation, we immediately understand who we are dealing with! Indeed, its sting is compared to the pain of a gunshot. In addition to pain, the venom of this ant attacks the central nervous system, so the pain spreads throughout the body.
Although the bite of this insect is very painful, it is not fatal. In addition, you should know that the effects of its substance do not last long. It is above all fear that will take over, because you will have quite intense convulsions, cold sweats and your heart will race. Namely that it is the largest ant in terms of size and that it is found in the Amazon rainforest.
Number 9: The Giant Hornet
This insect is also scary. In addition, he is attracted to odors such as alcohol or human sweat. So you can’t always control them. Unlike the ant, its sting is deadly. Giant hornets are present on the Asian continent, especially in China.

In 2013, forty-three people were killed by the bite of this insect and two others were seriously injured. The scene is shocking… Hundreds of giant hornets were flying in the Chianti region and chasing people for several hundred meters. Sometimes, some people have been bitten more than 200 times… A scenario worthy of the greatest horror movies…
Number 8: Fleas
These little beasts look innocent and they even have an affectionate name, yet they are not. Namely that these insects can jump up to three times their size and cling to the hair of dogs and cats.
If they enter a house, they can multiply with astonishing speed. A bite from this insect causes intense itching that can even create an infection if left untreated. So always check the hair of your four-legged friends and treat them!
In number 7: an insect called Triatominae
This insect is a type of bug that can transmit a very serious disease called Chagas disease to humans. It causes flu-like symptoms, but the problem is that it is incurable.
There is no treatment to cure it. Death is inevitable… This disease can also cause an enlarged heart or a thinning of the colon. Namely that these insects are attracted by the CO2 that people expel when they breathe. Thus, this insect often bites near the mouth…
In number 6: the recluse
Of course, in the lot of the most dangerous insects, one could not forget to put a spider. An insect that haunts us and of which some people have a real phobia. Is it a big tarantula? Not really ! The so-called recluse spider isn’t the scariest in terms of appearance, but its bite is indeed deadly. Indeed, its venom is so intense that it can destroy human flesh in just a few minutes. This causes very rapid necrosis of your cells.
But, rest assured, most of the time, its bite causes swelling, redness, but the symptoms disappear after just a few days. Sometimes victims may experience very severe pain throughout the body, chills, nausea, ulcers, aching joints, or even epileptic seizures.
Number 5: Tsetse fly
Of course, you have already heard of this insect. He lives in Central Africa and carries diseases that can be fatal wherever he goes.

For example, sleeping sickness that attacks the human brain. In addition to feeling sleepy all the time, being very tired, you may also have coordination problems, permanent confusion and a change in your deep personality. Know that there is no vaccine or treatment.
In number 4: flies
You meet them every day! But some are more dangerous than others, especially those found in regions with hot or temperate climates. Flies indeed lay eggs directly in the body of other insects such as ticks or mosquitoes for example.
Then, if we are bitten by these insects, the eggs will be deposited at the same time under our skin. This will create holes for bacteria to pass through your skin. As a result, you can get serious infections. Fortunately, there are solutions to treat yourself by taking antibiotics or having the eggs removed by a professional.
Number 3: The Africanized Bee
This insect is so called because it is a cross between European bees and bees that come from Africa. Like giant hornets, they are very aggressive, attack and chase and can sting to death.
However, their venom is not necessarily more dangerous, but it is the number of bites that will play. These bees will sting so many times that the poison contained in the human being will be too important and therefore fatal.
Number 2: mosquitoes
Mosquitoes are a real scourge. Every year, about 800,000 people die from the bite of this insect. Some of them can be carriers of deadly viruses such as malaria, yellow fever or dengue fever.
